No. The Law Review extends membership to a candidate who successfully completes the write-on exercise, including a memorandum and Bluebook citation exercise. There is no set number of spots, such as only the top 10 highest scores being offered membership. We encourage all candidates to put in their best possible effort when completing the write-on exercise.

No. The Law Review solely utilizes the write-on process to decide membership. You can participate in the write-on exercise regardless of your GPA or class rank.  We encourage all interested students to participate in the write-on exercise; please do not self-eliminate based on your GPA or class rank.

A Member of Law Review can expect many benefits. First, you have the opportunity for your work to be published. Law Review provides one of your first opportunities for your work to be circulated and recognized in the legal field. Second, you will be able to say you were a member of the Law Review for your entire career. Many attorneys have their Law Review membership listed on their firm biographies years into their career. Third, many employers look for Law Review membership and are eager to talk to you about your experience. Many of your experiences on Law Review are relevant to the skills that employers look for, and it is a great talking point. Finally, the Law Review has its own office in the library where Members are welcome to socialize and do homework between classes.  There are certainly more benefits to membership on the Law Review, and these are not exhaustive.

A Member who completed all required responsibilities will be eligible to apply for a position on the Board of Editors. The 2023-24 Board of Editors will decide the 2022-23 Board of Editors following an application and interview process. Any Member who is not on the Board of Editors will be an Associate Editor in their third year. A student who joins the Law Review in their third year (the summer following their second year) will only be able to achieve the role of Member.
